Telemundo celebrates ‘Quinceanera’

Spanish-lingo net begins prod'n on talent show

MIAMI — Telemundo has begun production on “Quinceanera: Mama quiero ser artista” (Quinceanera: Mama, I Want to Be a Performer”), its first project with reality/gameshow producer Nostromo.

The NBC U-owned broadcaster inked a development and production deal with Nostromo June 6.

Telemundo had announced a “Quinceanera” show at its May 2005 upfront, but the show, originally following Latinas preparing for their big coming-out celebration at age 15, had remained in development.

The Nostromo production will combine reality and gameshow genres, making it a talent competition between 10 girls, ages 14 and 15, who will compete to realize their dream of becoming a star.

Show, to air on weekends this fall on Telemundo, will be hosted by Mexican TV personality Alan Tacher, formerly of TV Azteca’s “La Academia.”

Nostromo’s Giorgio Aresu, who developed “La Academia” for Azteca as well as other reality formats in Mexico, Spain and Italy, will lead the production.

Miami station Mega TV already airs a reality show about teen girls and the lead-up to their quinceanera celebrations.

And pan-regional feevee MTV Latin America is producing a similar show, akin to sister U.S. net’s “My Super Sweet 16.”
